Hey all you budding technical folks, here's the prospect: SBTC is a non-profit. We help other non-profits with technology. You get to feel good about productive work while applying your technical skills, and learning new stuff.
This is an awesome opportunity to college students, folks with other part time positions, and people who may have other constraints on their time. Our organization also has many folks who are semi-retired, and seeking to keep busy and give back with their time. So, here's what we're doing:
SBTC supports dozens of schools and other non-profits on a recurring basis. We have a great team of field technicians to help with that. But they aren't there every moment of every day, so we need folks who will work out of our local help desk to provide those users with support. We get a lot of calls for password resets, mapping drives, and similar requests.
We also support PowerSchool, a student information system, for well over a hundred schools. This is where we get into application support, as well as data analytics, in filling requests for schools and other organizations. We help end users with the product, as well as supporting the back end, and customization, so there's even some coding going on.
If you're into bullet points:
LOCATIONS: Collectively, SBTC serves all of Lake and Cook counties in Illinois. The positions we're most interest in filling right now are in Lake County and Northern Cook County, regularly working from our Des Plaines office. So if you're in Des Plaines, Palatine, Arlington Heights, Glenview, Skokie, Niles, Wheeling, Park Ridge, Buffalo Grove, or similar towns up this way, this will be a good fit geographically.
Other candidates are welcome to apply, we're always growing, but these are the current openings. Targeted cover letters are strongly encouraged. Our Director is a former English teacher; he appreciates knowing that someone can communicate well about why they want to work for a non-profit, and not just make truckloads more money working in the for-profit space.
This is a part-time position, and is excellent for anyone looking to fill a few regularly-scheduled days in a consistent, stable environment. College students, semi-retired folks, and anyone else well-served by consistent scheduling on a part-time basis are strongly encouraged to apply.
SBTC is a nonprofit organization that provides technology support to other nonprofits throughout the Chicagoland region. We work with many schools, churches, and other organizations, providing on-site technology support.
